In the mature U.S. marketplace for ice cream and frozen desserts, marketers, retailers, and foodservice providers can grow their businesses by creating and marketing products that speak to today’s consumers on an emotional level. Along with localized strategies and niche products representing true differentiation, integrating new media into the marketing mix can create buzz and communicate brand attributes that are responsive to the desires of economic downturn-weary Americans wanting to indulge without breaking the bank.
Ice cream and frozen desserts is a highly competitive market, with two multinational conglomerates—Nestlé and Unilever—at the top of the heap. Across the country, nonetheless, are hundreds of regional and local competitors that often go head-to-head with the industry giants in particular geographic markets, with many local and regional brands commanding the loyalty of generations of customers. In addition, a slew of niche companies run by entrepreneurs are making more than a blip on the radar screen with innovative and truly differentiated products.
